Jonah 4:4, NKJV
Then the Lord said, “Is it right for you to be angry?”

Pray that unlike Jonah, the Nepalis will forgive their oppressors and be used to bless them. Pray for repentance, forgiveness, and spiritual refreshment to come to the Nepalis both in the US and in Bhutan.

Nepali Hindus in Kansas City, MO

by PE

(This story is intended to illustrate how this people group lives.)
Naveen opened the door and invited the health worker to step into his modest living room. The city worker went directly to the tiny elderly woman swathed in quilts and staring vacantly through the window. The old woman told the health worker, “I’m not stressed, I’m in pain.” The health worker shook his head. This vague malady of unending pain seems to be an aftereffect of the torture some of the Nepali refugees suffered after fleeing Nepal to Bhutan. It is especially common in older refugees.
Naveen and his family was able to immigrate to the US with about 1000 other Nepalis who were living in neighboring Bhutan. He settled in Kansas City. Eighty percent are Hindu or Buddhist, but 20 percent are now following Christ, and the numbers are growing!
As the health worker opened the door to leave, the first arrivals began pouring into Naveen’s home for house church. Their goal is to reach every Nepali and Bhutanese person in the US, and then send them back to their home countries to deliver the gospel.
